2017

Saturday 25th November. Bash the birch with Sheffield University Conservation Volunteers. Meet the next generation of Eco Warriors and help us cut down birch saplings on the heath. Fresh air, exercise, good views and a worthwhile job to retain the character and ecosystem of heathland. Hand tools and training provided but bring your own lunch. Please wear stout footwear and clothes to match the late November weather. We will go for a short walk around the reserve once the work is done. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.

 

Sunday 3rd December. Wood Pasture regeneration: Bracken brash clear-up. As part of our project to improve the quality of our wood pasture areas, for both wildlife and livestock, we will be cutting and clearing bracken brash and we would welcome volunteers to give us a hand. We have evidence that this management is improving the habitat for some bird species and reptiles, and is likely to be doing the same for many species of invertebrates. Tools and training will be provided where necessary. Please bring your own lunch and wear stout footwear and clothes to match the terrain and late December weather. Meet at the River Don bridge, Station Road, Deepcar SK291981 at 11.00. Scheduled to finish at 16.00.
